A new Big Girl toy!

It's COLD in Wisconsin right now!

You may have heard my husband’s a Mooney guy; he’s owned 4 of them and if there’s ANYTHING you want to know about them, he’s your man. Last Sunday he was one happy guy as we pulled his 231 out of the hangar at 6:30 a.m. and loaded up for a 1,000 mile round trip cross-country flight. This was a flight with a mission and sometimes ya just gotta get there fast!

Can you believe the ice is 2 feet thick right now in Wisconsin (and you can drive the airport courtesy car on it)!?!

We’re talking Indianapolis, around Chicago, up into northern Wisconsin, back to Greenbay, across Lake Michigan, down the Michigan shoreline and back to central Indiana. Wow – lots of flying and one really great day!

Really cool to see all the fishing shacks on the ice

So what were we doing wondering around 4 states covering a lot of ground fast?! Well, you can bet there’s a “new” taildragger involved! The pre-flight inspection is done, I’ve made the offer, the offer’s been accepted and now its just a matter of finishing the deal. At this point, everything’s looking good for this weekend. I’m checking the weather hourly and hope to make the trip again in the Mooney – only one way this time!  As soon as my name’s on the title of the shiny bird, I’ll be flying it home and will be posting pictures!! So if you’re asking “what is it?”!! Sorry, I really wish I could tell. I’d really love to but I’ve got to wait till I’ve sealed the deal!!

    Hey Judy
    hope everything goes off without a hitch. I can’t wait to find out what you are getting. The suspense will kill us. But congrats and enjoy.
